The Weekly Standard reports:
The White House misspelled Santa Claus twice, according to a recent transcript of President Barack Obama's remarks at the national Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
From the official transcript:
THE PRESIDENT: No, no, no -- (laughter) -- I just wasn’t sure. I know this program is taped so we can always edit this out. (Laughter.) Was there something else that we were supposed to be singing? Santa Clause Is Coming To Town -- that's what I thought. Let’s hit it!
(Everyone sings “Santa Clause Is Coming To Town.)
In fact, it should read, "Santa Claus."
